There are many aspects of communication skills that you need to bear in mind while being in society. Apart from all, there is something special about communication. And this special is about “Thank you” and good wishes. Be sure that every day you increase your circle of communication and have a lot of positive emotions from having diverse acquaintances, many colleagues and friends and along with that lots of good wishes.
Nowadays the influence of social platforms is immense. It is like an avalanche that slides down a mountain. In case it is rightly used it is beneficial. Otherwise, it might change the charm of conversation. Social platforms are incredibly good if you get to know new people with whom you can interact in “real” life. Once you have made new acquaintances let’s have the new step in building good communication. It’s all about being thankful. It is important as we are time deprived society, everything is fast moving today, news and communications are on fast stream now, and everyone wants positive emotions in communication.
People more easily acknowledge a relationship with a person who says, “thank you.” Expressing thanks to the person shows that we care about him or her, it is our gratitude and a simple sign of respect. All small wishes and tiny thanks make a significant impact on strong and happy relationships. Ask yourself for a while, if you can measure the number of thanks and wishes you usually share. That might be a big number or a small, but don’t be ashamed as it is always fun to make some changes in yourself.
If we look at the historic aspect, according to Merriam Webster the first known use of “Thank” was in the 12th century. The first known use of “thank you” in the meaning of a polite expression of the gratitude was in 1792.
Let’s have a deeper insight into all kinds of original ways of respect and gratitude expressions in different countries.
In English the word “thank” derives from the Latin word “tongere”, the root of which “tong-“means “think.” The original meaning of “thank you” was “I will remember what you have done for me.”
In French, the word “merci” comes from the Old French meaning of the word of “mercit” which means “reward,” “gift,” “kindness,” “grace” and “pity.”
In Arabic, the word “shukran” has the root “shukr.” It is an Arabic term that means thankfulness, gratitude, and acknowledgement by humans.
In Chinese there are several ways to express gratitude; however, one of the most common phrases used to express thanks is xièxie (“Thank you”). In Chinese, the word is used to be over 2000 years ago.
In Japanese “Arigatou” is the phrase used to say “thanks.”It is derived from the word, arigatashi. Broken down, Aru means “to exist,” and katai means “difficult.” Japanese-speakers would use this phrase to mean “rare and precious.”
During special occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries, festivals, and weddings, whether within family or friends, giving good wishes has become an unofficial tradition. It’s unofficial since there’s really no rule to follow, rather it’s something that we naturally do for our loved ones. We express our concern and love by giving gifts along with our best wishes. We do not just do this during special events but also when a person dear to us is sick and we want them to know we’re praying for their speedy recovery.
Good luck and good wishes messages lift the mood for the day. Here are some special wishes for you:
-Keep your best wishes, close to your heart and watch what happens.
-May you fly high in life & success be always with you.
-My heart is filled with joy at the sound of your good news. Best of luck to you dear friend.
-A little smile, a word of cheer, a bit of love from someone near, a little gift from one held dear,
best wishes for the coming year. These make a Merry Christmas. – John Greenleaf Whittier
-Here is the best wish for the new year: Let there be more freedom of thought throughout the world! Fields need rain; truths need freedom of thought. – Mehmet Murat ildan
Sending a small gift with a “Thank you” note serves as a good example of how one single gesture can advance understanding and communication. Thank you and good wishes open for people cosmos, a word derived from the Greek word for a universe that is ordered and harmonious. Remember relationships are like flowers, they gloriously bloom with much care, love, and good intention.
Family and friendship ties are cultivated with sincere good wishes and gifts. For example, at the end of the month-long fast of Ramadan, many Muslims celebrate Eid by giving gifts and sending good wishes. During Diwali, the Hindu festival of lights, there is an extensive gift exchange. Diwali is a big holiday that represents the triumph of good over evil. Christmas is always associated with gifts and good wishes. Christmas is the holiday with lots of presents, a beautiful Christmas tree, bright lights, and universal happiness.
October and November is a big Thanksgiving time for families from the West. It’s a beautiful thing to gift because it reminds the person how important they are in our lives and that we will always wish them well in whatever they’re going through in life. The first Thanksgiving in Canada was observed in 1879 as a chance to give thanks over the many blessings bestowed on the Canadian people. The festivities and foods include parades, football games, and lots of turkey and pumpkin pie. It’s always fun to have time with family and celebrate great holidays together.
Traditions and customs are different but there are many similarities as well.
